What’s Spermidine?

Spermidine is a polyamine, which means it has two or more primary amino groups. It is naturally occurring and widely present in ribosomes and living tissues. Spermidine has been shown to extend the lifespan of fungi, nematodes, insects and rodents.

In the human body, it is synthesized from its precursor putrescine and used to produce spermine, another important polyamine. It plays a vital role in cell function and survival.

Spermidine is considered a potent activator of so-called autophagy. This is a cyclic process within cells that causes old cells to renew themselves, thereby restoring their activity. Recent research supports this idea and suggests that increasing intake of this polyamine through a spermidine-rich diet can reduce all-cause mortality related to cardiovascular disease.

The Benefits of Spermidine

Spermidine has received considerable attention in recent years for its potential health benefits. This naturally occurring polyamine compound has been the subject of extensive research, revealing its potential importance in various aspects of human health. Still, research is in its early stages, and the following potential benefits have yet to be proven in humans.

Potential health benefits of spermidine include supporting cardiovascular function, fertility and slowing the aging process. It triggers autophagy, which extends lifespan and fights cellular aging, supporting healthy cells, skin and brain.

Spermidine itself is the active ingredient in spermidine supplements.

Extend Life and Reduce Risk of Disease

Spermidine, akin to the effects of fasting, triggers protein deacetylation and autophagy, contributing to healthy DNA function and the elimination of senescent and toxic cells. Research indicates that supplementation with spermidine may potentially reduce the risk of various health issues, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, and neurodegenerative conditions.

Moreover, there is compelling evidence suggesting that spermidine supplementation may lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies conducted on aged mice demonstrated improvements in heart structure and function after receiving spermidine. This positive impact extended to metabolic enhancements, attributed to the restoration of mitochondrial structure and function following spermidine supplementation.

Anti-inflammatory and Immune-boosting Properties

In preclinical laboratory trials, spermidine appears to reduce inflammation levels and slow the aging of cells and tissues. Additionally, a 2017 laboratory model showed that spermidine has antioxidant properties and protects against oxidative stress by reducing the accumulation of reactive oxygen species within cells. Reactive oxygen species are free radicals that damage the body in chronic inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis, ischemic heart disease, and many other lung, kidney, and liver diseases.

Although the primary way spermidine appears to support longevity is through autophagy, there is also evidence that it supports health and longevity in other ways. Some studies indicate that it has anti-inflammatory properties and is involved in lipid metabolism, cell growth and proliferation, and programmed cell death, known as apoptosis.

What is spermidine?

Spermidine is a natural polyamine found in all cells in the body.

What does autophagy mean?

Autophagy is the term used to describe the process in which old/damaged cells are broken down and reused to create new, healthy cells.

Does Spermidine contain actual sperm?

No – although it’s a common question. That being said, Spermidine is found in semen, as it is present in all body cells.

What is it good for?

Spermidine has been linked with multiple health benefits including prolonged lifespan due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, as well as its ability to boost cell renewal and autophagy.

Which foods are highest in Spermidine?

There are many plant-derived foods with moderate to high levels of Spermidine; these include Soya beans, Wheatgerm, Vegetables (peas and mushrooms are both excellent sources) as well as cruciferous veg such as cauliflower or broccoli, Cheese (particularly cheddar, brie, parmesan, and gouda), Fruits (mangos and bananas particularly so).

Should I supplement with Spermidine?

Spermidine is a naturally occurring product so there are minimal risks associated with taking it in supplement form. Given the benefits it can have on the body and boosts cell renewal, immunity, and promotes antiaging, it’s certainly a recommended supplement on our list! That being said, if you have any doubts or existing health conditions, please check with your health provider first.

What is the recommended dosage for Spermidine?

6mg per day is an average dose, but it would be best to check with your health provider if you aren’t sure.

Does Spermidine have side effects?

There are no known side effects associated with taking Spermidine supplements.

Is Spermidine vegan friendly?

Yes, Spermidine is vegan-friendly.

How does spermidine work?

Spermidine has been characterized as a natural autophagy inducer. Autophagy is a process by which cells get rid of parts that are no longer needed or don’t work right, helping cells stay healthy and promoting longevity. Spermidine has been shown to block several enzymes that negatively control autophagy and may be as powerful as rapamycin, an FDA-approved immunosuppressant with strong autophagy-stimulating effects.
